are again here like we were for the debt ceiling, like we were for the government shutdown. it is ridiculous that we are here because we want to be having a big discussion. we have all the facts in front of us. we know that there are people like you kwhof a position on taxes. we know there are others who have positions on other things. and our democracy is supposed to allow us to somehow come to together, to convene, to deliberate and to evolve some sort of a compromise. what response -- what responsibility do you think conservative republicans who have signed this pledge to grover norquist bear for us getting to where we are today? >> well, actually, let me defend grover for a second. >> sure. >> he actually has signed on to some kind of a deal. we're in a situation that if nothing happens taxes go up on everyone. so -- and then a guy like me doesn't want to see that happen obviously. look, i want to make one other point. even if we go over the so-called cliff, and i think cliff is a bad metaphor here, really kind of a slope. it's not like the world's going to come to an end january 1st or
shrinking the government, making the government do less are actually good things. >> right, i don't think there's any question about that. we know there's an element of the republican party, ron paul, rand paul being the most visible, who think the less government does, the better. now, in that vain, i've been struck. david wasserman at the "cook political report" crunched the numbers on this, that there are 234 house republicans. 15 of them, 15 represent districts that president obama carried in 2012. given that, and we were talking with kelly about the fact that this has to come through the house at some point, that republicans still control. is there any reason for, politically speaking -- >> absolutely, right. >> -- not good of the country speaking, but politically speaking, is there any reason for these guys to make a deal given that for 215 of them, the constituency they represent are mitt romney's? >> i think this is the problem. where most people follow a presidential election and don't realize what happens in each of the districts. what republicans have done a very good job of in
this is coming up. the government will continue to function for a couple more months. emergency measures will be used to keep the money flowing, so to speak. this is unrelated to the fiscal cliff, so it's an additional problem that everybody has to deal with. of course the worst thing is we know how horrible it was the last time the debt ceiling needed to be raised in the summer of 2011, it went down to the wire and it looked as if there was a chance the united states would not raise the borrowing limit and default. we heard talk about social security payments not going out and that kind of thing. that's all led to the first downgrade in the u.s. credit rating, the stock market tanked. that was a ugly scenario. on top of the fiscal cliff, we may go through this all over again. it's another drag on the markets and on the whole economy at exactly the wrong time. >> when you say drag, though, give us an example of what you mean. we talked about january 2nd, everybody goes back to work and markets open. are we going to see a lot of volatility. all of a sudden it crashes down at once. what ha
worry about the growth of government and so we have to use these leverage points to try to do those things that naturally leaders should do themselves but that is where we are at a nation and that is what we have to do over the next several months to ensure that we don't continue down this path of insolvency that we are on right now. >> greta: you mentioned other countries in the world. do you not wonder what they think about us. in we can't even manage our own economy and our own finances and meanwhile trying to assert diplomatic authority around the world when we can't even take care of our own problems. sort of wonder even the impact that has that we look so poor in how we are handling this? >> there is no question that our moral authority around the world that's been greatly weakened for numbers of reasons but certainly this issue, i mean people are watching, i was talking to somebody today in europe and they were saying the only thing that is on the news there is whether the american politicians if you will are going to deal with this issue that is before us. so no doubt we are
coming in to the federal government and regresive in many ways and what it does is funds social security. so should we have even been tinkering with that in the first place? >> one tax cut that, you know, the democrats lobbying for and the republicans did not want because it's technically a stimulative effort. don't forget when it was enacted we were in the middle of a crisis. i think, you know, all sides would probably agree it helped and worked but it's probably time to go away so that's sort of, you know, it is the most immediate thing and i think that was inevitable anyway. the far greater concern is the bush tax cuts and what happens to them. >> you talk about the middle class shouldn't feel the pain here and everybody agrees with that but the working class, absolutely shouldn't have to pay for this and feel the pain but taking, getting rid of unemployment ben filths, talk about the price of milk going up and other things like that, that will have a huge impact on the working class, people that don't have savings dealing with losing $3,400 and can't deal with that at all and that's
a five-year extension of the foreign intelligence surveillance act allowinging the government to eavesdrop on overseas phone calls and e-mails from potential terrorists. they say it's protected us from more attacks like 9/11. others argue the bill could be abused. the bill is being sent to president obama and he is expected to sign it. >>> and the state's same-sex marriage law went into effect at midnight. the first in line to tie the knot, and they say they've been waiting years for this moment. >> it's very surreal still. we didn't -- we didn't expect all the cameras and everything tonight. >> we finally feel equal, and happy to live in maine. >> it's official now. >> after nine years, it's -- it's all good. >> yep. >> maine, washington state approved same-sex marriage, it's already legal in d.c. and six other states. >>> let's turn to the weather. face it, it's affecting a huge chunk of the nation right now. >> there's a lot of snow out there. in fact, snow currently covers more than half of the lower 48 states and unfortunately for some people, the storm's not over yet. le
relatives, nobody's safe in the city anymore. we don't really see the government picking up that as an issue. i mean safety is the first thing that you would assure to a citizen, right? >> reporter: this isn't the first time a rape case has been reported. but many more never are, but this case has become a lightning rod in india. dissolution with the government -- protesters say enough is enough. >> the brutality of this crime and the way it has been handled kind of insensitive treatment that some of the statements that some of the politicians and some of the people have made ensure that not only me -- i mean everybody has come out to see that this is not done and we are not okay with this. >> they want to see the government take concrete steps to address their concerns. >> surely, definitely. then you know, just faster justice systems. you need to have special courts when it's not open to the public. i think that's still a provision, but you need to have more courts and better hearing and stronger systems. >> reporter: it's no longer about one girl or one particular rape case. it's about in
access to government financed health care at all. if the republicans tomorrow said to you, you know what, you can have all the tax increases you want. we'll raise taxes on people who make $250,000 or more would you then be willing to do serious entitlement reform? >> let me just say that in fact we do means test millionaires right now. there is a serious means testing. >> not by much. a millionaire who gets medicare is nothing. it costs them nothing relative to their net worth, nothing. >> you know what, if the republicans would move, and they haven't yet, you just heard it, no willingness on the part of the republicans to do anything. >> if they did, you would do what? >> we already put $600 billion on the table to get savings out of medicare/medicaid. those are entitlements. >> that's pure cuts to spending that you claim are going to come from waste, fraud, abuse, etc. or just from cutting certain programs. you've got to decrease demand in some parts of medicare and a great way to do it is for people who have the money to spend their own money instead of spending young people's money a
this morning, saying the russian government's politically motivated decision will reduce adoption possibilities for children who are now under institutional care. were further concerned about statements that adoptions already under way may be stopped and hope that the russian government will allow those children who have already met and bonded with their future parents to finish the necessary legal procedures so that they can join their families. and as matthew said, there are just about 50 children that are in the pipeline right now. what senior state department officials are telling me is that they're hoping to get at least those through the pipeline, those children who have already met these parents to be able to be united with them, and then they'll work on trying to lift the whole ban, suzanne. >> elise, is there any kind of advice they're giving those families, those americans, who have already met with their potential children? what should they be doing now? >> reporter: well, right now all they can do, suzanne, is sit tight. they really -- the state department is working on these childr
to monitor them in the nefarious way. >> juan: this is the government. >> andrea: they are outing them like they have done something wrong. the same way you are carded if you buy allergy medication. symptom of greater disease. gawps you have a permit to own a gun. >> andrea: would you be comfortable if the address was out just mine is. >> andrea: writers of the journal news. >> juan: the guy wrote the article revealed he owns a gun. i am in the phone book. it neem the newspaper. >> kimberly: call me. >> juan: thank you. for all of us, there is a high degree of risk. one thing that greg says on the show that is true, we're guarded. people guard us. that is not the issue. i'm not anti-second amendment but be realistic. there is a public safety issue with people access to guns. >> eric: you have it backwards. >> juan: thank you. >> eric: if you took the country and did the same thing on the map of the country the safest places to live with the places with lots of dots not with no dots. >> juan: you are wrong. >> eric: i'm not. >> juan: i live in urban america. 34 people a day die from gun inju
agricultural law goes back into place, 1949 law, which basically means the federal government will go back in the business of strongly supporting the dairy industry by raising the price support, if you will, or support for dairy products to $38 a hundred weight. that's almost double what the price of milk is today. >> that price could even be $7 or more for a gallon of milk. the current national average is about $3.65. chris galen, he is the vice president of communications for the national milk producers federation. he says a price hike is also going to hurt the dairy farmers. he's joining us on the phone to tell us why. chris, good to have you here. first of all, explain to us how is it that the farmers themselves could be hurt as well if you don't have this farm bill extended. >> what we're asking congress to do, suzanne, is actually pass a new farm bill, as you mentioned, because that's going to provide dairy farmers a better safety net than what they've had in the past few years. 2012 was a really rough year for dairy farmers. they're really hurting now. we don't want to go back to th
cliff, so note to the government. it does matter. >> yeah, but that's, as you say, part of it. laura, what else is going on? it just felt like we were going into a lackluster season here. what happened? >> i mean, there's been some discussion about weather trends as well, but whether or not we go over the fiscal cliff, consumers think next year we'll see higher taxes and lower entitlements. the only place in our space where we see a very significant fiscal cliff hit is aspirational customer, so the step-up customer into low-end tiffany's jewelry, for example, we just don't think they showed up this year. >> even if people, stacy, are going to be hit by higher taxes next year, at least some people are going to be hit by higher taxes next year, a lot of this is psychological, isn't it. you turn on the tv and you're feeling spooked, right? and once we have a deal or resolution, uncertainty taken away, will people unleash their spending? will this be unlocked? >> i think at the high end, yes, there will be some relief, and, you know, to laura's point, we were in tiffany over the weekend,
. >> good morning, dave. >> dave: they will be fined if the government chooses $1.3 million a day for not going along with obama care. why? >> that's how the law is written. and this mandate is written so that if they don't provide abort fascia's that's what they're opposed to the in hha mandate. some opposed to abortions. hobby lobby don't want to pay for abortion pills cord under the hh mandate. they will be penalized again for what costs roughly a couple of dollars per person maybe a month in their nrch plan. $100 for each of the 13,000 employees they have. just not it not giving their employees access to for free at no cost and no co-pay abort faces. that's what's at issue here. this is a religious freedom issue. and a question of like the supreme court handled the citizens united do corporations also have if they have got free speech rights in the first amendment. why wouldn't they have the free exercise of religion rights that are also in fact, they start the first amendment as the religious -- i think it's a very important point to make that though hobby lobby has had a tou
a lack of accountability. nobody stepped down or stepped aside. they are still retaining the government jobs that they said would step aside. why isn't holder stepping down? >> juan: how is eric holder involved in benghazi? >> kimberly: he is not. >> andrea: they sent in the f.b.i. wink, wink. but holder would get back to us. >> eric: lisa jackson was using a male alias for official business. >> 12,000 e-mails. what are they doing? sending e-mails to each other all over the place. when do they get anything done in washington 12,000 e-mails. i don't think i sent 12,000 e-mails in my life. >> andrea: the biggest failure under her watch was the keystone pipeline. her administration blocked the keystone pipeline. actively her and her boss' orders. she could go. goodbye. >> eric: juan, quickly. she could step aside and not answer. just she should answer. if you're avoiding having your e-mails seen and understood as a public official you are wrong. she has been outstanding public servant. the environmentists are disappointed obama hasn't listened to her more, especially on fracking and pipeli
and what the tax rates are going to be on, it will pay for at the most a week of what the government spends. you still have to deal with the other 358 days of the year. that's why wref to focus on how we spend the taxpayers' dollars, and most taxpayers think the money is being wasted. >> senator, thank you so much. we appreciate your time. of course, we are waiting for the president. he's expected to speak at the south court auditorium at the white house. this is happening at 1:30, about ten minutes or so away. we're very interested in whether or not the are meaty details, significant progress made from both sides. we have an outline and framework and based on the talks and negotiations taking place between the vice president and the head of the senate on the republican side. we will see if, in fact, they are making any real, real progress or if this is just a push from the president, a tactic to push the republicans and to get public support by using the bully pulpit there at the white house. we'll bring that for you just moments away. orrexion® deep wrinkle night cream. it's clinically p
it on more government programs. >> senator harry reid should have made sure the senate passed a budget sometime in the last three years and it would be reconciled with the house and you would have a framework, a budget resolution. the fact we're down to the 59th minute of the 11th-hour and a couple elected officials and unelected staffs behind closed doors doing a back room deal is an outrage. >> in the final moments, a key development is that vice president joe biden has been in delaware for the weekend. he came back a few hours ago and is huddled behind closed doors, two phone calls with mitch mcconnell. a year and a half ago, it looked like all hope was lost and vice president with his long time in the senate many years was able to reach out to mitch mcconnell and they pulled a deal together in the final hours. >> the 59th minute of the 11th hour. ed henry, thank you very much. >>> going over the cliff would affect nearly every american from smaller paychecks thanks to higher taxes to the sudden end of unemployment. there are some things you really need to know about. i'm joined by
years, up 56%. iron ore prices. that's a real lead on demand. and especially as the chinese government makes all these nods toward urbanization plans and the need to update and invest in infrastructure. these are the areas where you want to be. >> yeah. also ties into what clearly will be one of the bigger stories of next year. and that is central banking wars. japan is right next door, dan. >> this is a story that is getting not as much play as it should. but the dispute going on between china and japan is quite stark right now. and i see on the interweb that is a chinese think tank has come out and said conflict between japan and china is inevitable in 2013 and 2014. this is a real debate. simultaneously lost in the debate over the election of abe and his push for abe-nomics is the fact that this is a very nationalistic individual. his first term in '06 was characterized by a lot of nationalistic policies. we'll see how that plays out with respect to the ongoing debate. >> we have to take a break here. the markets are looking for some direction after fiscal cliff negotiations stall.
has, they won't have anymore, and they won't have the government assistance programs to rely on. may not have the same effect we saw in the last recession. >> the ultimate consumer discretionary stocks, it occurs to me, dana, would be the luxury retailers like a tiffany which have suffered here recently. they in the past have been immune to a lot of vagaries of the consumer and the economy, but that hasn't been the case this time around. what happened? >> i think tiffany's a little bit different than some of the other luxury goods company. tiffany overall is working on its product, silver business which is a high margin category. didn't have enough novelty and newness in it and hopefully that's something they can fix for next year. >> wasn't just me then? >> not just you. >> exactly. >> i noticed that, yeah. >> dana on that point, the companies for stocks like tiffany's, what about aptitude in places like china in. >> overall when we see what's happening in china, so many new brands emerged in china, new companies on the luxury good fronts, and you've had the big conglomerates vogue
